Puerto Galera Yacht Club Easter Regatta 2011: NOR

Racing at Puerto Galera
www.pgyc.org
Puerto Galera Yacht Club would like to invite you all to this year’s Easter Regatta at the PGYC from Friday, April 22 to Sunday, April 24. There will be free mooring on a first come first served basis from April 21 – April 24. As always, our racing follows a pursuit racing format which has us doing staggered starts and hopefully finishing about the same time each day making for some interesting and crowded finishes. Perhaps someone can top the 360 degree roundup at the finish line which was a main highlight of the All Souls Regatta last year? Each night we host an awards ceremony at the clubhouse, have a few drinks, eat some great food and have a good time. We hope to see you all there.
